A plan for the future, is to have an online store, where you can trade you GIL for FF XIV items and gold.

Have to head out for about an hour. Bounty thread and give away threads, will be created when I get back.
Also, looking for interested people to join the development team.
Community involvment is highly encouraged. Have ideas to make GIL better, I'd love to hear them.

Pathetic.

A large chunk will go to bounties and giveaways and future development. A small portion, will go to me. I had to use my own BTC, to pay for a VPS to have a fast, dedicated node. I needed someone to help compile the windows QT, because it wasn't working for me, and I couldn't figure it out. Came out of my pocket. I also spent over 2 weeks of my spare time, working on it, while also working my 60 hour a week job. So yeah, I'm taking a salary.

Anyone who has a major issue with a less than 1% premine, has never created an alt coin, and has no idea, the amount of work, that goes into it.

"Um, nope. Do some actual research, most coins I attacked, has the ridiculously large block reward. Oh and super blocks, I hate fucking super blocks."

I guess it was super blocks that you hate...don't see how you can hate one, then launch basically the same thing, but whatever, I was wrong I guess

I'm going to go ahead and suggest now that nobody mine any of Hydroponica's future coins.

Every single one he releases from here on out will instantly be attacked and we will not let up until it is ruined. Mastercoin will be left alone because some of you already have significant amounts of hashpower and coins stocked up and we do not want to hurt anyone's wallets

We will be doing you all a favor and saving you money on electricity mining something that will become worthless

You've been warned

Transactions require 3 confirmations

What is with shitclone posts saying how many confirmations are required? You don't get to decide this, only the person receiving a transaction.

With that said, as a total FF nerd I appreciate the name. ;)

3 confirmations, until they are spendable in your wallet client. a default, if you will. Obviously any pool or exchange, can manipulate this at their discretion.

Not surprisingly, with the difficulty set so low this is a massive orphan fest. I mean, don't get me wrong, I really didn't expect much else from the get-go. Just stating facts.

Aye, the block reward is 0, but it will likely be an orphanfest well past 1000 when the rewards start because the difficulty was set too low.

Yes, the difficulty always rises when hashing power increases, but it should have been set higher to begin with.

Yes, the difficulty always rises when hashing power increases, but it should have been set higher to begin with.

Hard to test mine a coin, when the diff is high. and, would have taken too long to mine genesis block, ect. This was the fairest way to do it. Block reward is 0, until block 1000, noone had the opportunity to rape it, at 0 diff


Title: Re: [ANN] GIL release is now!!!
Post by: sharkbyte093 on July 14, 2013, 02:47:04 PM

Full block rewards don't start until block 3000, and diff is rising over quickly. Please read the whole post, before commenting. Thanks.

Quite  a fair block reward for the launch to stop instamining.

GLD's premine was 7 million....
If you can think of a way, to tie this coin into FF XIV, without any capital to work with, I'd love to hear it.
And by the way, I just agreed to pay 20K for the first pool to be setup...There hasn't been a single coin paid out in a block reward yet, except for the first premine block. So tell me, where was that 20K supposed to come from, exactly?

Block time of Gil, is half of what PXC's is, that should help offset it. Also, that was a sleepy typo, I was up most of last night, working and preparing for this. Diff adjusts ever 150 blocks.

Go to http://www.toywiz.com/finfanviiibf.html and re-sell those for Gil, find as much FF merchandise as you can and re-sell it till you got enough bucks to buy stock to lower your prices.  Buy a chocobo teddy for Gil now that is kinda cool.

is diff adjust every 250 blocks a good idea?  will this coin suffer like ftc, cnc, pxc did ? or is the max adjust 80% like with pxc now?

Quite  a fair block reward for the launch to stop instamining.

Block time of Gil, is half of what PXC's is, that should help offset it. Also, that was a sleepy typo, I was up most of last night, working and preparing for this. Diff adjusts ever 150 blocks.

ok cool, thanks for answer.

Just warning you guys, I'm going to 51% this and all future Hydroponica coins at some point and I won't let up until they are announced dead. It might be today, it might be next week, but at some point all the coins you are right now mining will become obsolete. I will gladly set aside 60 or so mHash to ruin him, with more than double that available at any given time. It won't even take 1/4 of my hashpower to ruin his shitcoins. Take it seriously or waste your electricity, it's up to you

Fair warning to all. I only want to affect the copy-paste "dev", not miners, so I'm warning you all in advance

Same way CAP secured rights from Bethesda. Square Enix does not own a trademark for GIL. Now, If I had named it Final Fantasy coin, that would be a different story.
Please, do a little research, before commenting, that's all I ask

My coin has niether large block rewards, or super blocks, so....


Blocks start at 1 and 2 and then jump to 10-50. By definition the super blocks are the 50's, and the normal blocks are 10. Is there a metric on how the blocks are determined to be random? If not how can you truly predict how much will be in existence <Max coins, 180,000,000>?

Because the coin will stop producing coins at ~180,000,000. The only uncertainty, is how long it will take to reach 180,000,000 coins, do to the random block rewards. The client generates a random number, for each block, then if it falls within a range of certain numbers, that determines the block reward, for that block.
It's all in the code;

Code:

The starting blocks, of 1, 2 ,3, were merely to give people time to setup and to allow difficulty to increase, preventing any 1 person, from insta mining thousands of coins, while everyone else recieved nothing but orphans, and, its working, exactly as intended. You can't please everyone.

There are no super-blocks, the block reward was designed this way, to add variety, and make the coin fun to mine. Everyone has equal opportunity here, it's not favoring anyone.

This coin is poison...

Every time anyone tries to make a new spamcoin, they always point to other spamcoins that had a bigger premine or a worse launch. The flaw of this logic is that they all are trash. if your poop is bigger than my poop, I can say that my poop has less poop then your poop.

Having any coins premined is a scam, it leads to the idea that one person is more impotant than the rest when it comes to money. Why is it your authority to make bounties for an Open-source monetary system? If it's a novel coin, other people will make exchanges and whatnot to make the coins they have worth more. You literally give no reason to mine this coin since everyone has nothing compared to your assets. although you don't technically have a 99% share in hashpower, you have a 99% stake in the money itself. What do you think would happen if one person owned 99% of all the gold in the world?

In all fairness, he was doing large giveaways on cryptsy yesterday, so from what I am seeing so far that premine is going out to the community.  And anyway, the premine is only .0016% of the total coins to be produced.  Plus, it took over a day to get to full rewards, so he did what he could to prevent instamining.  Say what you want about this coin, but there are far, far worse offenders in the premine/instamine department.

I hate that logic, just cause the holocaust happened doesn't give an excuse to kill people. this isn't original at all. Tell me why it's better than bitcoin.

Also, I think you mean 0.16%. do you seriously have any faith in this coin if when it first comes out, one person has all of them? Why have one person give them away at random when mining's purpose is literally to fairly give them out at random? why not make a coin with no premine and pay BTC for bounties? oh that's right, you can't make money that way...

I'm sorry, why should this stuff timeout of my own pocket? I don't really care so much about profit, but I'm not really a fan of losing money. I premised a tiny bit, I used it to get a pool up within hours of release. I prevented anyon. From install mining huge amounts, and I have been distributing coins, a lot of them, to people who lack the hardware to mine much themselves. So, what was your problem? Move along

Because this is supposed to be a currency, not a business. one really can say you premised. and by no insta-mining by anyone, you are obviously are not including yourself from mining 300,000. The vast majority of coins is held by one miner. The whole point of mining is to give work for coins. What does giving them away do except hype your scam?

As long as the coins are legitimately used for giveaways, bounties, and the like to get a coin going, I see no problem in a reasonable premine.  I don't expect a dev to spend his free time designing, programming, and promoting their coin and on top of it sink his own BTC into it to promote it.  Honestly, I don't even mind a dev premining and holding a reasonable amount of coins (what a reasonable amount is is up for debate though, and yes, I screwed up the math, it is a .16% premine) for himself if that means he is going to invest his time and energy into making the coin successful.  Face it, if a dev stands to gain from the creation of his coin, we will get better and more innovative coins.  This is simple free-market capitalism at play, same reason phizer invests billions into new and better pharmaceuticals, same reason GM invests billions into creating safer and more efficient cars, they sure as shit aren't doing it out of the kindness of their hearts.  So why should a coin dev be looked at any differently?  If we as a community decide a dev isn't allowed to profit off his creation, we will continue to be stuck with shitty copy-paste scrypt coins.

I don't understand the arrogance of some in the crypto community.  "why can't we have a real innovative coin that I get to profit off of, but fuck the dev who spent his time and energy on it, if he profits a cent I will scream scam-coin, oh and I also expect him to sink his own BTC into it to promote it because pre-mine = scam coin"  Meanwhile the miners sit back and bitch and mine and dump and cash out.

Bullshit, we have seen more than once a day that that is utter bullshit, what we get is more and more-frequent pump and dumps, more and more-frequent launches of scamcoins.

The whole point of bitcoin is an opensource money. This coin is literally a scrypt clone anyway so I have no idea why you're defending it. This coin takes no time to make and there are better ways to earn off of it than blatantly giving yourself a bajillion coins. there was this guy named satoshi nakamoto who made something really innovative and for a while, he was one of only a few people mining. For almost a year and a half his coins were practically worthless, but the incentive to change currency as a whole by improving bitcoin was enough to get bitcoins value and noticeabilitly up, inadvertently making him rich.
Saying GIL isn't a pump and dump and a way to just make money contradicts the fact it was made to make the dev money as a business endeavor. The fact he gave himself 300,000 coins makes this exceedingly obvious, especially when he picks and chooses who he gives his "bounty" coins to. To be honest, even if there wasn't a premine, it's worthless because there's no reason to choose this over any other coin.

This is a scam, plain and simple.

This is a scam, plain and simple.

BTC was premined to fuck, so, I guess BTC is a scam coin too.
I don't pick and choose. I go into Cryptsy, I shout, first GILL address, gets free GIL!!! and I send it to them.
I created this coin. It took a lot of work. I paid, out of my pocket, for a VPS to have a fast, dedicated node. I paid, out of my own pocket, to have the windows client compiled for me, because I couldn't get it to compile. I paid a bounty of 20K, to have a pool setup, within hours of release. The pool was up and ready, before the block reward had increased to 1. Most coins release, and after a couple hours, you see threads, with people who have thousands of coins to sell. Noone had thousands of GIL. Block reward was 2, until a couple hours ago.
GIL is fast, 45 secoond block times, 3 confirmations. Difficulty adjusts both up and down, very quickly. It's very secure. The block reward right now, is random, between 10 and 50. That's a whole lot of randomness, which should help prevent it being attacked. I have a theory here. Lets say, someone wanted to launch a 51% attack, on GIL...So, they create  their own offline version of the blockchain. Now, GIL's blockchain, is completely impossible to duplicate, due to the random block rewards. The attacker brings their version of the blockchain online, the network sees it, and, see's that the block rewards for their version, is completely different than what the other 50 clients on the network, are showing. So, in theory, and this is just a theory, mind you, the network rejects their version, and no fork is created.
Now, I created GIL, with a specific goal and purpose in mind. I clearly outlined this, and, asked for volunteers, and support from the community, to join my team, and make this happen. So far, I have had interest from 1 person, and the rest of this community, has done but bash it.
So, on that note, if you have an issue with the premine, fine, what ever, don't mine it. The other 35 MH/s that is pointed at it, please, continue to mine it, and have fun :)

I'm not defending the coin, there is a great chance it is going nowhere just like most of these coins.  Just saying that in comparison to other premines/instamines it is nothing to bitch about.  Remind me again just how many LTC were insta-mined in the first few days of launch?

Yes, Satoshi mined his coin from the start when practically no one in the world knew about them or gave a shit about them.  So he basically gave himself a fuckton of coins when BTC was still incubating.  And this is effectively different from a premine........how?

These days a dev doesn't have that luxury when every new coin announced immediately has 300 MHs thrown at it.  Unless the dev also owns a whole lot of 7950's or ASICs, he can't even compete with the horde of miners.

Also, these days no one has the time to mine for years before a coin reaps a reward, we have expensive ASICs and GPUs to pay for.  I'm sure it didn't set Satoshi back much dough to CPU mine 100 BTC a day.

Spout all the idealistic rhetoric you want, but fact of the matter is 95% of the crypto community doesn't give a shit about any of these coins.  All they care about is making more BTC and at the end of the day, more fiat because we can't pay our mortgage with BTC or sheets of LSD ordered off SR.

Fact is crypto's are business these days, if no one ever started buying BTC with USD, Satoshi would still be CPU mining to this day and hoping the world would wise up to his wonderful creation.

BTC rise to $266 was the best and worst thing that ever happened to it.  Now it is all about the money.  If we actually used BTC as Satoshi envisioned, we wouldn't even trade them for fiat, we would have no need for fiat anymore!  Yet we all still have clarkmoody loaded up 24/7 so we can obsessively monitor it's worth in filthy dirty fiat.

And I love sunny king and PPC and XPM, he is one of the true innovators in the community, but look at the debacle with the XPM client shortly after launch.  It was terribly optimized, and resulted in a ridiculous amount of client mods thrown together by the community.  It was anything but a smooth launch.

Do you think if devs were properly compensated for their labor, that we would issues such as this?  A high quality coin painstakingly developed for a long time by talented devs would have, at launch, innovative features, a flawless client, services and shops accepting the coin, mining pools, block explorer, official websites localized for all major countries and languages, and I'm sure many other things that I lack the creativity to even think up.

Instead, we just get devs who view their coin as at best a hobby to work on in their spare time, clients just slapped up on a forum and we basically just mine and pray we aren't wasting our time.

So, on that note, if you have an issue with the premine, fine, what ever, don't mine it. The other 35 MH/s that is pointed at it, please, continue to mine it, and have fun :)


"It took a lot of work" Are you fucking kidding? If it took more than 20 minutes, you are doing it wrong.

Premise, shitcoin, nothing new, dumb name and idiotic "reasoning" behind project. Yay for new altcopypasta-coins!

Yeah, this isn't a copy/paste coin. thanks though ::)

Really? So what is unique with this one? I agree, it does have a shittier logo and dumber name than most, but that's hardly defining factors. Oh 'reward' change and 'super blocks' yeah, that's new  ::) ::) ::)

Maybe its link to final fantasy will be the key in supplanting BTC as the ultimate crypto coin LOL!!!

I'm not defending the coin, there is a great chance it is going nowhere just like most of these coins.  Just saying that in comparison to other premines/instamines it is nothing to bitch about.  Remind me again just how many LTC were insta-mined in the first few days of launch?

Yes, Satoshi mined his coin from the start when practically no one in the world knew about them or gave a shit about them.  So he basically gave himself a fuckton of coins when BTC was still incubating.  And this is effectively different from a premine........how?

These days a dev doesn't have that luxury when every new coin announced immediately has 300 MHs thrown at it.  Unless the dev also owns a whole lot of 7950's or ASICs, he can't even compete with the horde of miners.

Also, these days no one has the time to mine for years before a coin reaps a reward, we have expensive ASICs and GPUs to pay for.  I'm sure it didn't set Satoshi back much dough to CPU mine 100 BTC a day.

Spout all the idealistic rhetoric you want, but fact of the matter is 95% of the crypto community doesn't give a shit about any of these coins.  All they care about is making more BTC and at the end of the day, more fiat because we can't pay our mortgage with BTC or sheets of LSD ordered off SR.

Fact is crypto's are business these days, if no one ever started buying BTC with USD, Satoshi would still be CPU mining to this day and hoping the world would wise up to his wonderful creation.

BTC rise to $266 was the best and worst thing that ever happened to it.  Now it is all about the money.  If we actually used BTC as Satoshi envisioned, we wouldn't even trade them for fiat, we would have no need for fiat anymore!  Yet we all still have clarkmoody loaded up 24/7 so we can obsessively monitor it's worth in filthy dirty fiat.

And I love sunny king and PPC and XPM, he is one of the true innovators in the community, but look at the debacle with the XPM client shortly after launch.  It was terribly optimized, and resulted in a ridiculous amount of client mods thrown together by the community.  It was anything but a smooth launch.

Do you think if devs were properly compensated for their labor, that we would issues such as this?  A high quality coin painstakingly developed for a long time by talented devs would have, at launch, innovative features, a flawless client, services and shops accepting the coin, mining pools, block explorer, official websites localized for all major countries and languages, and I'm sure many other things that I lack the creativity to even think up.

Instead, we just get devs who view their coin as at best a hobby to work on in their spare time, clients just slapped up on a forum and we basically just mine and pray we aren't wasting our time.

Um, I agree? My whole point is that all the altcoins are worthless, this one included.

We get this crap because it is a quick and simple throwaway scam, it is trivially easy to spawn new coins, but it does not really seem very likely that if we all jump on several new almost-identical scams per day the scam spawner will eventually scam enough total bitcoins out of us that at last he or she will sit down and painstakingly develop something useful by hiring talented devs etc.

On the contrary, what really happened in real life is, someone built an exchange, sold it off for capital, and has now been spending a long time painstakingly developing "Ripple". No scamcoins needed, just one real service that was really needed thus got a lot of users (MtGox, in case you don't know that is what I am referring to).

In all the history of ponzi schemes and pyramid schemes and tulip mania schemes and so on has any of the principals of such schemes actually used their ill-gotten gains to painstakingly develop something actually worthwhile with talented devs?

Just warning you guys, I'm going to 51% this and all future Hydroponica coins at some point and I won't let up until they are announced dead. It might be today, it might be next week, but at some point all the coins you are right now mining will become obsolete. I will gladly set aside 60 or so mHash to ruin him, with more than double that available at any given time. It won't even take 1/4 of my hashpower to ruin his shitcoins. Take it seriously or waste your electricity, it's up to you

Fair warning to all. I only want to affect the copy-paste "dev", not miners, so I'm warning you all in advance

^^ Gogo man, Hydroponica is a Hypocrite and deserves it 10000%. I can't wait to see this happen :D More power to you...errr...Hashpower xD

They haven't missed the bitcoin train. If even just a few hundred million of them each bought just one bitcoin, they'd be excellent train-engineers driving themselves past "go" to collect a nice payday...

Oh wait, if only 20,999,999 of them did so, even... Heck even only 20,000,000 of them would accomplish quite a bit... Gosh even only 10,000,000 would still be quite a payday...

So no they have not missed the train, they are sitting somewhere other than at the station.

As long as the coins are legitimately used for giveaways, bounties, and the like to get a coin going, I see no problem in a reasonable premine.  I don't expect a dev to spend his free time designing, programming, and promoting their coin and on top of it sink his own BTC into it to promote it.  Honestly, I don't even mind a dev premining and holding a reasonable amount of coins (what a reasonable amount is is up for debate though, and yes, I screwed up the math, it is a .16% premine) for himself if that means he is going to invest his time and energy into making the coin successful.  Face it, if a dev stands to gain from the creation of his coin, we will get better and more innovative coins.  This is simple free-market capitalism at play, same reason phizer invests billions into new and better pharmaceuticals, same reason GM invests billions into creating safer and more efficient cars, they sure as shit aren't doing it out of the kindness of their hearts.  So why should a coin dev be looked at any differently?  If we as a community decide a dev isn't allowed to profit off his creation, we will continue to be stuck with shitty copy-paste scrypt coins.

I don't understand the arrogance of some in the crypto community.  "why can't we have a real innovative coin that I get to profit off of, but fuck the dev who spent his time and energy on it, if he profits a cent I will scream scam-coin, oh and I also expect him to sink his own BTC into it to promote it because pre-mine = scam coin"  Meanwhile the miners sit back and bitch and mine and dump and cash out.

The whole point of bitcoin is an opensource money. This coin is literally a scrypt clone anyway so I have no idea why you're defending it. This coin takes no time to make and there are better ways to earn off of it than blatantly giving yourself a bajillion coins. there was this guy named satoshi nakamoto who made something really innovative and for a while, he was one of only a few people mining. For almost a year and a half his coins were practically worthless, but the incentive to change currency as a whole by improving bitcoin was enough to get bitcoins value and noticeabilitly up, inadvertently making him rich.
Saying GIL isn't a pump and dump and a way to just make money contradicts the fact it was made to make the dev money as a business endeavor. The fact he gave himself 300,000 coins makes this exceedingly obvious, especially when he picks and chooses who he gives his "bounty" coins to. To be honest, even if there wasn't a premine, it's worthless because there's no reason to choose this over any other coin.

This is a scam, plain and simple.

BTC was premined to fuck, so, I guess BTC is a scam coin too.
I don't pick and choose. I go into Cryptsy, I shout, first GILL address, gets free GIL!!! and I send it to them.
I created this coin. It took a lot of work. I paid, out of my pocket, for a VPS to have a fast, dedicated node. I paid, out of my own pocket, to have the windows client compiled for me, because I couldn't get it to compile. I paid a bounty of 20K, to have a pool setup, within hours of release. The pool was up and ready, before the block reward had increased to 1. Most coins release, and after a couple hours, you see threads, with people who have thousands of coins to sell. Noone had thousands of GIL. Block reward was 2, until a couple hours ago.
GIL is fast, 45 secoond block times, 3 confirmations. Difficulty adjusts both up and down, very quickly. It's very secure. The block reward right now, is random, between 10 and 50. That's a whole lot of randomness, which should help prevent it being attacked. I have a theory here. Lets say, someone wanted to launch a 51% attack, on GIL...So, they create  their own offline version of the blockchain. Now, GIL's blockchain, is completely impossible to duplicate, due to the random block rewards. The attacker brings their version of the blockchain online, the network sees it, and, see's that the block rewards for their version, is completely different than what the other 50 clients on the network, are showing. So, in theory, and this is just a theory, mind you, the network rejects their version, and no fork is created.
Now, I created GIL, with a specific goal and purpose in mind. I clearly outlined this, and, asked for volunteers, and support from the community, to join my team, and make this happen. So far, I have had interest from 1 person, and the rest of this community, has done but bash it.
So, on that note, if you have an issue with the premine, fine, what ever, don't mine it. The other 35 MH/s that is pointed at it, please, continue to mine it, and have fun :)

I don't think you get how your own coin works...

So, is my theory wrong? please, elaborate

Post by: DeathAndTaxes on July 15, 2013, 11:06:09 PM
By your logic a 51% attack is impossible on Bitcoin. The current blockchain has a sequence of blocks with a unique set of block hashes. The attacker's chain will have a different set of block hashes .... magically "the network" will detect this and stay on the "correct" chain.

Why doesn't it work that way? It hardly seems like something that "Magic" would be required, to make it happen....Say the client has 20 connections, than number 21 comes on, with their counterfeit blockchain. Why can't the client use the other 20 clients, to recognize that number 21 is on a false block chain, and reject it?

Well that is a good way to split the chain.  What is the "fake chain" is really the good chain and used by 20 million nodes around the world.  It just happens your node has 21 connections, 20 to an attacker and 1 to the rest of the legit network.

Please understand that anytime your solution relies on "the network" you have already failed.  There is no xCoin network.  There is a network of INDEPENDENT nodes connected to other INDEPENDENT nodes which happen to be running compatible copies of the same protocol. 

Your nodes has no idea what copies of what blockchains are on other nodes.  Your node has no idea it knows about all the blocks or it knows about all the txs.  Your node doesn't even know how many other nodes exist.  It knows its direct peers and it maintains a list of possible nodes (obtained from other nodes) but it never conclusively knows how many nodes there are.

Maybe a little less spamming the next scamcoin of the week and a little more learning on how peer to peer networks work.  Just an idea.

I like to make to make things interesting so you'll need at least 83MHS to 51% it (11 m/hs already there plus my 72m/hs) once I add my 72 mh/s to the original chain.

Since you're going to 51% it I have a question, exactly what are you going to do with your own chain since there are no exchanges?

With 60+ mhs you'll be the only one on that fork since diff will skyrocket, in other words you'll just be playing with yourself LOL...



~BCX~


PS I had to pull back to 8mh/s because I was hitting blocks every few seconds at 15mh/s.  ;D

He's just doing it, because I hurt his feelings. I really don't get why my coin would be a target. Just last night, I spent 6K of my own MasterCoins, because my new client fucked up, and the pool got all foobar'd. I gave the operater 6K, to make sure everyone on the pool got paid...Sure sounds like a scam coin to me. I could have just said fuck it, cashed out my coins, and let it die. But, I didn't just flip a switch on my coins, and disappear. Why not target those kind of coins, instead of ones that I am actively trying to make something out of?

My actual gil.conf:

addnode=199.180.115.125
addnode=121.215.159.167

Any clue?

yup you need to forward port 64576 or 64575 (cant remember which one) in your router to your machine with the wallet on it.

thanks, but I did the port forwarding at my router but didn't work (My wallet was running correctly but I can't connect now)
Also I update my gil.config with the new nodes and extra settings:

rpcport=64576

rpcuser=Gillovesyou33
rpcpassword=lovegilback33
rpcallowip=127.0.0.1
listen=1

addnode=24.209.133.75
addnode=207.12.89.80

I'm confused :S

thanks for your help, but I can't get any connection...
My port forward is correctly configured, besides I was using the wallet without problems and without port forwarding, it just stop working.
The new nodes were added to the gil.conf

rpcuser=Gillovesyou

The client is getting some crosstalk from the LTC network. Your client is actually in sync, it just says it isn't. It's showing the 400K+ blocks from Litecoin. It's not actually hurting the integrity of the GIL blockchain, or anything. Just being annoying. I am working on a fix for it. If anyone would like to off a hand in fixing this, it would be greatly appreciated.

Having the same problem, its frozen at 726 blocks remaining atm,
I guess we'll need some more people to upgrade for it to confirm, will leave it on for a while

I know what my issue was - the randomness of the block size.  I just put it up with the lowest block size as the set size (i know it is random, but this way, those that know the coin will know how to adjust that :) )

If you downloaded 7.2.1, please see OP for 7.2. Newer client, needs more testing first.
7.2, will atleast remove the LTC network warnings, its a start

Thanks, running on 7.2 now, it synced right away, network warnings are gone,
difficulty is at ~0.20, seems its increasing slowly but steady  ;D

Yeah, but the block reward is set to 10, even though the average block reward, is ~30.75, making it kind of useless.

The funny thing is, in theory that would be 750% profitability right now.

I do get an average block size of ~32, but block generation takes way more time than it should according to calculations I did with https://www.litecoinpool.org/calc (https://www.litecoinpool.org/calc), so its not as profitable for me..
I'm hashing below 1 MH/s though, so that might factor into it

Ok - well, I can remove the coin entirely, if you prefer. I can't put 30.75 because there are blocks that are less than that (and I'd rather show the minimum to err on the side of caution).  Just let me know and I will remove it.

ARG's block reward is 1 to 5, and you put 3, which is the average block value. If you aren't going to use a value that more accurately displays profitability, for GIL, like you did for ARG, then yes, please remove it from CoinChoose.

ARG I took a leap on since it was a small variance from the average and only did it after detailed analysis was given to me to show that not only the average but the mean was 3 (and there were minimal deviations away).  GIL is a much bigger variance and I can just see the screaming.  

If you can run an analysis against all mined blocks, show me the mean and media for the coins plus if the range is between 25 - 35 (within one standard deviation), I am happy to put it at 30 blocks.  Or if there is a way to programmatically get the block reward for the next block (and accurately reflect that), I can implement that function to update the block reward.

 Otherwise - I will remove it when I have a chance per your request.

Actually, someone did devise a way, to predict next block reward. Let me find it. It will be integrated into the client, eventually, I got side tracked by biger issues

New Client!! Big fixes!!

http://www.mediafire.com/download/5vysu6c77h8zzid/gil-qt-V7.2.Final.rar - V7.2.Final - Removed LTC network alert.
 - Resolved issue, where client was trying to sync with LTC Network.
- When using command getmininginfo, line has been added, showing next block reward.
- Can now use command getnextblockvalue in console, to get next block reward

See OP for any needed instructions!!

Post by: 8bitfish on August 27, 2013, 08:54:22 PM
Well, I've mined 16 blocks so far, totalling in 526 GIL, which is a solid average of 32.875 Coins.
Screenshot of wallet: http://s7.directupload.net/images/130827/uoxv6ibl.jpg (http://s7.directupload.net/images/130827/uoxv6ibl.jpg)

This is just a small scale example obviously, but with the blockchain there's going to be some way to calculate the average of all Blocks mined until this point I guess

How ever you wanna do it. But, also, here's the formula for Mean value;

ARG - (1+2+3+4+5)/5=3
GIL - (10+11+12+13+14+15+16+17+18+19+20+21+22+23+24+25+26+27+28+29+30+31+32+33+34+35+36+37+38+39+40+41+42+43+44+45+46+47+48+49+50)/40=30.75

Now, it may fluctuate either way, ~3 points, but, it is fairly accurate.

Now, it may fluctuate either way, ~3 points, but, it is fairly accurate.

Second formula is just an average, but I also need the median.  Also, the analysis I got for ARG was for all mined blocks since inceptions showing it was three.  That being said, I switched to the new client and am using that.

I'm going to go ahead and suggest now that nobody mine any of Hydroponica's future coins.

Every single one he releases from here on out will instantly be attacked and we will not let up until it is ruined. Mastercoin will be left alone because some of you already have significant amounts of hashpower and coins stocked up and we do not want to hurt anyone's wallets

We will be doing you all a favor and saving you money on electricity mining something that will become worthless

You've been warned

how's that attack on his business going ?

sounds like the pm's you sent me before "warning me" lol

this ring a bell buddy ?

If you don't believe me feel free to do your own research and look up what s doe subpoena is. We will be requesting them from both Cryptsy and bitcointalk on Monday if you don't stop.

You think this is a joke? Keep it up. We have logs of everything you have slandered us about and will continue to log any and all other misinformation you post.

Final friendly warning before we take it further

Funny part was when you and BCX were going on to hydropnica etc that it was not an attack and yet what did you say here ?
And you said that in July and its Sep now !
Admitting to hiring BCX to do your dirty work on chat is pretty scummy.
and so is Cryptsy staff letting you act like a brat on chat and doing business with you .. dumb idea lol

STFU ;)

Also could we have a P2Pool for this one? That would be great, now that the difficulty is going up and it's about to get too high for solo mining..

Or is this one of those customer service things, where the issue is on the person's end, and not the client, but he wants to get all belligerent and stupid, because, oh no, there could never be a problem with his PC.

you are unbelievable.

i asked you two questions this morning one about IRC mentioned in the logs and 2 about the upload bandwidth issue
and you answered ONE of them and then vanished never saying another word on Cryptsy's chat..
I asked my question over and over 5 god damn times ..people were laughing about it. and so was i ..and then i gave up.

so i seen you later at dinner time and asked you again and said what i just said above..
and you exploded into a tirade of insults and name calling for an hour straight.. insisting you answered me when you did not.
also since i never called you any names because i know its against the rules i did not.. so you then spent
all your time trying to convince everyone there i started it by calling you names first and i did nothing of the sort.
And my point was proven because you insulted on me on every single comment.. wish i was dead and calling me every name conceivable
and now your playing the proper businessman doing customer support for some unruly customer here.. yeah your a class act buddy L O fucking L

at the end of it all you caused a ton of drama all by yourself i think because you were feeling angry and defensive when i just asked simple question..
the response i got was this.. i have it ALL logged..

Spoetnik: @ofeefee: i am more than happy to mine but seriously the whole maxing my upload speed thing is a no go.. :(
Spoetnik: @hydroponica: except for the guy one line above you and no you did NOT answer me and i have witnesses here right now this minute lol
cujoramirez952: guys anybody knows when yac will be back?

notice how the guy one line above says it happened to me too ?

Funny, how you didn't post the next couple lines, where you call me an asshole, and start losing your shit on me, for not having an answer to your question ::) You logged it all, where's the part from earlier, where I didn't answer you?

@Hydroponica

I said one time you were acting like an asshole very early in the conversation after you exploded on me for no reason.. i was shocked !

the chat log shows a pattern of behavior that your repeating here and now..

- deny and or ignore any assertions
- change the subject + go on the attack
- spam as many insults in as fast as you can

i even if i did just randomly call you an asshole i did like 1 time compared to your non stop harassment for an hr straight calling me a bout names..
so because according to your made lie i called you one name means that you can call me a 100 of them ?

I will post the whole entire log because you deserve to be embarrassed for your pathetic and unprofessional behavior.

a couple of you guys pull this shit and lie and play games all for the audience that watchs..
so..... since we're going to carry all this on for them (see this guys original comment on the issue here earlier to see his attempt)
i will edit out the log and post only our comments to make it easy to read for the audience your still dragging this out for..
since i'm sure most people are not interested in reading a long winded chat log full of drama anyway lol

i expect more from you.. i have gone out of my way to take massive flak for defending you recently
and you repayed me with all this bullshit.. thanks a lot for being a compete asshole buddy :/
AND yes there is a very clear distinction between saying your an asshole and saying your acting like one.
and it's true you have been acting like one and i have the log top prove it.. sadly i can;t prove you were lying though..
lesson learned i need to log more and take more screen caps.. guys in this scene are weazles :(

Client confirmed for syncing. Sometimes it seems to get stuck, but it just takes a bit to find peers I guess..

Also, the pool on http://gil.netcoin.pl/ (http://gil.netcoin.pl/) is working perfectly, I get literally 0 rejects (intensity 16), so if you have a relatively low hash rate, but want to mine GIL, go there, it's a nice pool.

I'm not very happy with the Diff adjustment of GIL. My proposal, change it to adjust, every block, so it doesn't get stuck on a higher difficulty. I'll let the magic numbers switch take effect first.
Any objections?

MST has a diff adjust of 10, and people exploit the hellout of it. They let the pool mine at higher diff, then, when diff drops, they jump on solo with high hashrate, and steal a lot of the easy blocks for themselves, rinse, repeat. Adjusting every block, is the bgest way to ensure that loyal GIL miners, don't get screwed out of blocks, by those types of greedy people.

Yes. All my clients synced properly. If your client says out of sync, its just because noone is mining GIL right now, so no blocks are being found. I'll be changing the diff adjustment tonight, and releasing a new client, to address this issue.

Report;

As far as I can tell, the magic numbers hard fork, was a complete success. All previous issues, with the client trying to sync with the LTC network, should now be permenantly resolved.

And and all issues with the GIL client, please let me know. If it is a problem with the client itself, I will fix it, ASAP.
Please be aware, that not all issues you may experience, are caused by the GIL client. Some issues, are specific to your PC, and cannot be fixed by a client update.

Thanks

Warning

Donot mine @ http://gil.netcoin.pl

Pool operator, did not upgrade client, before magic number change. Since I had warned people, that the old client, would not communicate with the new client, any coins mined there, will never be able to be sent anywhere, that is using the new client ie: Cryptsy.
They will never reach their destination.

Only safe way to mine GIL atm, is solo.

Also, if it appears your wallet is not syncing, just give it time. Hashrate is very low on GIL atm, and diff is high. As soon as the next block is found, your client should sync

This is just preposterous, we all know Hydroponica has been doing alot of work on the client lately, and he's probably busy coding right now as well. Difficulty is usually around 0.2, was at about 0.5 at some point, it's not as much, but not so few hashing power that it would make a reason to kick the coin out.
The trading volume of GIL has been quite steady as well, this is just absurd, seriously Cryptsy didn't even examine it properly.

Indeed, after the updates Hydroponica very obviously just recently made, everything works perfectly fine, blockchain is unified, all my coins are still accessible, miner is hashing away,
I'm really curious to know in what kind of reality the Cryptsy staff seems to live in, GIL ist only just starting to become more popular.
Now that all issues with the client are fixed, everything is set for success.

I mean you just can't say Hydroponica wouldn't be commited enough, he did organize a pool, is doing upgrades whenever needed, he's recruiting new members to the dev team, he even set up an entire fucking Forum dedicated to GIL, all that is left to do is promotion now and we'll find ourselves spending GIL on some nice services such as coingas soon!

Coin Gas has also de-listed the coin, with only a week to go until the cryptsy drop the situation has become a risk I cannot monitor.  I really like GIL and am sad to see you go, as soon as another BTC trade source becomes available let me know and I will re-list you without question.

Get some hash, and check the pools maybe they are on the wrong chain, coinchoose says 685kh but one of the pools is reporting 25mh, I get the feeling that if some more hash is directed on this coin before the drop it might be avoided. I also check in the wallet and coinchoose is giving the same networkhasps as my 7.3 Wallet.

GIL Recovery Plan

1. fix the pools            Current block is above 108430
2. get coinchoose the block explorer fixed  
3. approach bter for listing, they seem to be after a few new coins recently

www.coingas.com supports the prevention of Cryptsy dropping this coin! That is 1 service, if others feel that GIL is worth saving from this round of de-listing please show your support also.

My suggestion, is if you want to help save GIL, get on the CoinEx thread, and show support to have them host a pool, and trade it on their exchange.

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=291647.new#new

Developer support, means very little, apparently. GIL needs strong community support, to stay alive

RPC Port = 64576
P2P Port = 64575
Testnet Port = 64574

Are these port numbers correct? The client is trying to connect to 64574, which according to the OP is a testnet... but the client says testnet=false.

I'm assuming the OP has muddled numbers, but I want to be 100% sure that I'm on a live net rather than a test one.

Yes, that's the RPC port, no dispute about that. I need to know that the P2P and testnet ports have been transposed in the OP.

You don't need to have a port number in your conf at all, it will use the default port

There still seems to be some confusion here...

Your OP says the P2P port is one thing, but the default port that the client connects to is another.

There is 9 active connection .
But client not connected to the node 207.12.89.80 .

And one more .
I think GIL client is using the port 64575 for P2P .
But first post in this thread is saying 64574 is testnet port .

managed to sync with this node BUT BE WARNED if you try and mine on it, it will steal your blocks by blocking your ip, it then checks every 2mins to see if your online until you quit. it will then work again after 5-10mins orphaning your confirmed blocks.

Ok, so as the client somehow went cactus, basically all existent coins in GIL are frozen, this goes as well for GIL balances on Cryptsy,
I myself still have a rather big frozen amount of them on there, is there anything we can do about this at this point. -.-

Do we know what exactly went wrong with the client, why it isn't syncing right now?
Maybe new Nodes would fix the problem?

Post by: almightyruler on January 30, 2014, 01:41:51 PM
I think GIL may have run into the negative retarget block issue too. This is where a block is generated with a timestamp lower than the previous one (ie going back in time), which causes the difficulty retargeting algorithm to fail.

If this is the case (I haven't checked the code) mining will not be possible, and nodes may be banning peers if they receive a block they don't think is right. For example:

ProcessBlock: ACCEPTED
received block c917ebe57e73f3b2db34
  nActualTimespan = 106327  before bounds
GetNextWorkRequired RETGILET
nTargetTimespan = 160    nActualTimespan = 640
Before: 1e0ffff0  00000ffff0000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000
After:  1e0fffff  00000fffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffff
ERROR: AcceptBlock() : incorrect proof of work
ERROR: ProcessBlock() : AcceptBlock FAILED
disconnecting node 192.241.136.248:64574


The retarget issue can only be fixed with a client update (hard fork)

I can't easily see what has happened to recent blocks because both my nodes refuse to sync past the very first 3 blocks...

BTW, anyone note that "RETARGET" was changed to "RETGILET" in the above debug output? Indiscriminate search & replace ARG->GIL in the source. :D
